. clinton in deciding about the colors, the designs that would go on the service, how those particular colors would look in the various settings in the state dining room or the east room, and i do remember mrs. clinton's mother, mrs. rodham was living in the house at the time and would come to some of these meetings about showing samples from the porcelain factory, and none of them seemed to be satisfactory. and she said, you know, i've been -- the bathroom of my suite is a beautiful yellow color, she said. and i think we should try that yellow color. so we got a sample of the wallpaper and sent it off to lennox, and they did some samples and worked out beautifully and that was sort of mrs. rodham's legacy i think in terms of state dinners. >> let's go to looking at transitions. the transitions into the white house that a family makes and the transitions out as well. because often for a president, he's been running for office for a couple of years, and he's a political person who is most likely been at the white house numerous times. but in coming into the white house, there are first

stint as counselor to democratic president bill clinton. you left the clinton administration before his showdown with republicans in congress that led to the last government shutdown in 1995-1996 when the public largely blamed then speaker newt gingrich and the republicans for that fiasco. let's assume republicans don't want a repeat of that this time around. is just the threat of the shutdown enough to weigh on the calculations made by both sides? >> it may well be that the combination of the sequester and the continuing resolution of the shutdown will force people back to the table. i think there's a good possibility of that. i agree with ron brownstein that we're very unlikely to have a shutdown. but i would caution this ali, we've had 17 shutdowns since 1976. they're usually quite brief. they're blips on the screen. the one we had that you're recalling, of '95-96. a much more serious shutdown, it was a show zwroun between president clinton and newt gingrich. and the president won. but what was very important about that was it cleared the air. the shutdown and the collapse on the rep

. remember the old bill clinton strategy, saying in 1992 when the economy was nowhere near as bad as the one barack obama inherited, he was doing so many things at once. i mean, give him credit, he accomplished an incredible amount of stuff. but one result of that is it was very hard for the american electorate to see the forest with all these trees popping up. like, what did health care reform have to do with getting people back to work? the answer is not anything really. although it was a good thing to do in its own right. in my view, not in everybody's view. and so you had people watching this burst of act -- activity in 27 directions at once and not perceiving the really excellent job that the obama team did in preventing a much worse fate than we could have had. so i think i've talked too long already. let me stop there and see what sort of questions. i'm in trouble here. of.
